Fashion For Twerps
Show broadcast on 8 June 2017
How does Steven Tyler look so sexy? How do you pronounce 'secondment' in English? What are the effects of pizza on Welsh speech? All these questions answered in today's show - plus Humble Brag Of The Day, John Googles The Travel (well worth hearing today), the Light-Hearted Paper Review, John's Shame Well and a little bit of fun with Arcade Fire. You're all legends.
Conversations and riffs
John once suffered partial memory loss after playing British Bulldog.
Is Elis' daughter turning into a cockney old man? She also came up with the wisdom: "It's easy to talk, it's not easy to listen."
John Googles the Traffic entirely in a Scottish accent while real Scot DJ Gordon Smart looks on.
Elis James' Light-Hearted Paper Review
Elis' selection of humorous stories from this week's newspapers.
The Sun's recipe of the day: fish cakes. The Mirror's top two inventions ever: teabags and the Internet.
Are hipsters who make hand-crafted things (socks, bird tables) shunning the digital economy and returning to a simpler time or, in John's words, is it "fashion for twerps"?
Elis quizzes John on the latest developments in the English language.
John's Shame Well
John frees another listener of their shame.
Overcompensating for a previous shame episode by offering sweets to a mother and her child on public transport in a creepy way.
More examples of that scourge of social media, the humblebrag.
